Mountain Safari at WNC Nature Center

8 Jun 2013

Please join the Friends of the WNC Nature Center on June 8th from 6pm - 9pm for a one-of-a-kind social adventure! Dress in your best safari gear and party with the animals.

Come hang out with the otters, cougars, bears and wolves while enjoying special entertainment, food and drink!

Every party needs great music and entertainment, and we've got it, with performances by Reems Creek Incident, The Zoodles, Luke McPeeters, Eric Barker of Burn the Sun, and Ben Wilson. And we'll have wonderful food and drink generously donated by Creekside Taphouse, Highlands Brewing Company, Chili’s, and Mellow Mushroom--all free with your event ticket!

Don't miss the amazing silent auction and raffle to raise funds for the Friends of the Nature Center, which will include items like beautiful prints of the Center’s animals, one of a kind framed paw prints, special romantic getaway packages, art from local artists, exciting outdoor adventure packages, and more! And, of course, there will be fun Kid Safari Crafts and special encounters with the Nature Center animals.
